Since 1981, Warren County Community College has been an example of excellence in education and we’ve had more than 40 years to perfect it. See what we mean – here are Ten Reasons to Choose WCCC.

We believe that everyone should have access to education. That’s why we accept 100% of the students who apply to our college – no questions asked. Once in, you’re part of the WCCC tradition of successful Golden Eagles. Our graduates will tell you; this is the place to be!

Warren County Community College offers free tuition and fees for qualified students. We also offer free tutoring for all students, free placement testing, free parking, free printing and photocopying, access to our library and online databases, access to all of our state-of-the-art computer labs, and free transcript processing and delivery.

We're partnering with Cengage Unlimited to bring affordable textbooks to students! For $135 a year, students will have access to all of their textbooks and online resources through their smart phones, computers, and tablets. Want paper back? Cengage can print and ship textbooks to your home for $8 a book!

4. Make Your Credits Count

You may have already earned college credit! If you graduated high school from a Warren County high school, you may have earned Dual Enrollment credit. For the Veterans in our community, we offer our VIPER Program that accepts college credits for military training. We make completing your degree easy!

WCCC is large enough to serve your needs while small enough to care. Our small size ensures all students get individualized attention. Advisers and faculty are warm, welcoming, and care about your success. There’s friendly faces around every corner who are with you every step of the way.

6. Why Pay More?

Free tuition and fees are available to Warren County residents only at WCCC. This program is not offered at County College of Morris, is not offered at Sussex County College, and not offered at Raritan Valley Community College. You'll only get this incredible grant with us!

We’re flexible. WCCC offers personalized service and small class sizes at every time of day. Our curriculum offers courses in the morning, afternoon, evening, weekends, and online. Campus offices have late night hours to accommodate every schedule. We’re ready when you are.

8. Take Credits With You!

Our academic programs prepare students for transfer to four-year colleges and universities. Under the NJ Transfer law, students who have graduated from a New Jersey community college, and have received a C or better in their courses, are legally guaranteed transfer to a Bachelor’s degree program at New Jersey’s public four-year colleges and universities.
